C3Z Sample Processing Lab

The overall goal of CCCZ is to establish interdisciplinary cancer research programs in precision oncology to provide cancer patients with access to personalized treatment concepts. For the standardized processing of tumor samples, a central sample processing laboratory - the C3Z Sample Processing Lab - has been established at CCCZ.

The C3Z Sample Processing Lab (C3Z SPL) is operated by the Institute of Pathology and Molecular Pathology  and the Diagnostic Hematology & Transfusion Medicine of the Department of Medical Oncology and Hematology at the USZ.  The available expertise guarantees quality-assured sample processing according to standard operating procedures. Our laboratory team advises and supports CCCZ research groups in processing biomaterials for translational research projects.

Please contact us, if the C3Z SPL can support you in standardized, quality-assured processing of patient samples. We are happy to discuss project-specific details and needs with you.
